Paris Hilton spent as much as four hours a day in the make-up chair so she could look like a trampy vamp for her new film REPO! THE GENETIC OPERA.
The socialite shows off her singing and acting skills in the quirky musical, which is scheduled to hit cinemas next spring (08) - and she always learned patience.
She says, "(My character) just changes her look everyday. Throughout the film, I have different noses, different eyes, different hair."
Hilton, who plays the ageing daughter of a ruthless cosmetic surgery boss, also dresses completely differently for the film, wearing shiny black latex and prosthetics.
She adds, "I think people are going to be very surprised when they see this movie."
